Calabria At a Glance

Region Name Calabria

Calabria is a non-industrial rural mountainous region. Its economy is dependent on cereals, citrus, and particularly olives, with a per-capita income less than half the national average. Called Enotria by the Greeks in pre-Roma times for its illustrious vinous past, today viticulture and winemaking are far from the vital industries they once were and account for a tiny proportion of land use.

  • Score: 86 Vintage 2019 Vinous Media The 2019 Greco is pretty with nuances of sweet white flowers, crushed stone and lemon confit. This is a soft and pleasantly ripe effort that balances sweet melon with salty mineral tones. Exotic florals and a hint of mint linger as it tapers off with medium length.
